Our laboratory studies the interaction between tumor cells and the host immune system. A major focus is understanding the role of innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) and NK cells in the context of cancer. We are interested in understanding how these cells differentiate and influence the tumor cells in the tumor microenvironment, particularly in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. Depending on the phenotype of the ILC subsets, we believe these cells may be pro-tumorigenic or anti-tumorigenic. We are looking for someone interested in a postdoctoral fellowship to pursue these studies in primary patient samples and using novel in vivo and in vitro model systems. The candidate should have experience with multi-parameter flow cytometry and human immune cell profiling, in vivo mouse models, and functional immunology assays. Additional useful skills include mass cytometry (CyTOF), single-cell RNA-sequencing, and some bioinformatics experience; however, these are not required.
